    That is a great idea V. I always feel its the front passenger that has the scary ride in a LHD over here; facing on-coming traffic without a steering wheel or pedals. Is your Ram one of these Geoff? The ultimate log recovery vehicle https://www.aev-conversions.com/vehicles/prospector-xl-tray-bed/

    Thats the plan Geoff. My sister had a brand new disco2 and had nothing but trouble with it. The disco3 currently has an intermittent issue with no pick up when accelerating.....always a lottery pulling out at junctions. I spent years being driven miles in a 90 and series 3 often in the middle front seat which isnt fun when your 6'3". One memorable journey it was minus 10C outside, which means it was about the same inside. Middle seat for 3hrs with smokers either side and a farting lurcher across our laps. It doesnt matter how capable something is off road if you re p****d off before you get there And why put in a middle seat when two people cant close the leaking doors without putting their shoulders out the windows??? We must bring him into the light ☝

    I once spent a frosty impromtu September night in Kielder forest without a sleeping bag or mat. Ended up with my legs down the sleeves of a hi viz jacket. Thought Id book the George this time round

    Do you still have the WK Stew? Why a handful off road? Was it quadra drive or quadra trac?

    I still swing the axe for that reason Hank, but thankfully not through an unreasonable ex .

    I wondered if you d see it the same way Geoff as you seem to have some big kit. Clients could rarely understand that I couldnt pay them for the logs, but also didnt see that they should have to pay me to cut, split and stack logs for them .

    The issue is transporting them around - the costs in terms of time let alone diesel, then splitting them, drying them, storing them etc makes it a perk of the trade unless one has big machinery at hand. Its always worth stopping by tree work as you suggest Hank. Building sites are a very good option. But logs have value. In terms of dried split Beech logs vs heating oil, BTU for BTU, logs are more expensive.

    I looked at the amorak once but, I just cant reconcile myself to a 4x4 without a centre locking diff and low box. Especially a pick up with a high load capacity.
